Written on Marco officer fired, then reinstated, facing termination:

He has been confined to a room in the police station for at least 7 months. He has been given tasks that are outrageous and definitely not in his job description. He has documented everything and will bring this gross mismanagement to court and arbitration if necessary. There is another officer being abused that has been confined to this room for over a year. It's only your tax dollars that the police department will have to pay when they win in civil court.

"The working guys and gals have a chance here to create some change so do it support each other and if the accussed officer is being rail- roaded jump in because enough is enough."

Two officers did speak up and now they are part of the 23 Officers that left the Department. This administration has to go.

I talked to some people in New Brunswick and North Brunswick nobody has heard of her. If if cop receives complaints and they are not sustained just like in Derrigs case it means he/she are doing there job. I hope Derrig stops you someday when you had to many cocktails at CJs.

Written on Marco officer fired, then reinstated, facing termination:

2008, This is a total witch hunt. The Chief lost before and will lose again. Hopefully the manager will look into the investigation and realize that Derrig is being retaliated against. Don Hunter has one foot out the door and released this information to take the heat off him and his four incompetent commanders. The true story is Derrig is a hard worker and the most active cop on the island. Some people love him and some hate him. But the fact is he is good cop and knows who the bad guys are. Don Hunter says he is lying. Hunter had a stroke and seizure and now he has lost his mind. Bear and Hunter then told the world that he sustained a shoulder injury. These two clowns are out of control and have to go.

Written on Former Marco police lieutenant receives final warning after sending inappropriate photos :

The so called female cop is the husky one who puts on all the orange makeup. What was he thinking.

Written on Arbiter's report reinstates Marco police officer fired last year for misconduct :

That's was that nice lady who filed a law suit, Oh by the way, she lost. That's old news my friend. Don't you see the picture? I got one for you to look up, Wrongful termination. It's very expensive. You or one of your comrads must be someone Derrig put in the slammer. The city should stop waisting money on arbitrators, attorneys and court cost. Give Ed,mike and clif jobs back and call it a day.

Written on With gun drawn, FHP trooper arrests Miami police officer accused of going 120 mph:

The Miami Police officer was driving a cop car #1. He was handcuffed in uniform (#2 no respect). This trooper could not accurately pace him when he drove by her or switched lanes. Radar does not work that way (especially when there's other cars). I feel bad for the good trooper not related to this that calls for back up and the city of miami city cop stops at 711 before he responds. Watch the video at NBC-2.com. The law states for an officer to accurately judge your speed they have to pace you or use a device such as radar to concur with their visual estimate. Naples news guy, you should read the reckless or speed statue before you run off at the mouth.

Written on With gun drawn, FHP trooper arrests Miami police officer accused of going 120 mph:

I find this funny, this cop who is a girl(not being sexiest at all,But I know who she is). Just charged someone with wwrd without meeting the requirements of the law. Did the officer or person willfully or want-fully want to disregard the people around him. The answer is no! This trooper will be back on the job and the deputy that charged him with this misdemeanor will be looked at as an inexperienced trooper who does not know the law. To the trooper who was arrested hang in there and remember, times have changed especially here in south west Florida. These people have no respect anymore. Just do your job like the rest of them and do the bare min. Because they don't care either way. Good luck!

Written on Marco officer fired for role in August car crash:

I just read the city wants over 100k for more police vehicles. #1 stop!!!!!!! crashing them. And I read every one wants to cut the PD in half. This would not be the right thing to do. If they reorganize the police department this would be great. The Capt has not done one bit of real police work since 2000. Look it up on the county web site. He’s really getting his 100k worth. As for the Admin Lt., he’s not far behind. They have a police officer who is in charge of computers. And from what I heard from the Officers, the computers never work. This computer guy has never left his office since 2003. I was told this cop doesn’t even have a gun. They have two full time detectives who are retired and only do the work they are assigned, that has to be very little. I hope Hunter sees the writing on the wall and makes some changes. I was just told last week that they have two permanently assigned marine patrol officers. Come on, they have not done anything worth talking about except waist marine fuel. Please put these cops on the street where they can do there job and hold them accountable.

The police are here to help and serve the community not just sit behind a computer screen or a desk and collect an outrageous pay check. And as for the officers that lost there jobs they will go through the process and eventually be paid off or will be back to work.

Written on Marco officer fired for role in August car crash:

The department had no leadership. Lets hope Hunter brings in his boys from Collier and gets rid of the Capt. and admin LT., who just work inside the station and do no police work. I wonder how long it will take for Hunter to realize that the Capt. is a nasty person and does nothing for the department or the community. These two will just make up things for the citizen academy which is just a dog and pony show. This guy makes 100k a year and the two most important things he has done is organize the intoxicated Chief a farewell party and organize Hunter a welcoming party. The old chief retired my (bottom). He was told by the manager to leave or be fired. The manager told him to take a vacation and think it over. Instead of the news headlines reading Marco police chief fired for drunk during shooting Investigation, Carr put in his papers. Ed will be reinstated along with Derrick and for Tig Thompson being demoted because the pizza guy complained. Not good, Tig was demoted because The Capt. and Lt. told him it was okay to make an arrest. These two just used Tig and denied saying it later to protect them. Tig should hire an attorney or complain to equal opportunity for hostile work environment. I hope Hunter looks at the whole picture and comes to a conclusion that the Capt. and Admin LT. must go!
